I spilled a juice on my MacBook-Pro keyboard. Consequently, some keys like 2, esc and tab don't work anymore on my keyboard.

Is there anyway to change those disabled keys with combination of some other keys, like Fn,Ctrl, Option+ something, using an app or a command?

    @Electricman I have done this before for a friend here you go superuser.com/questions/665494/… Esc can be changed natively on new OSX sierra I have heard. – William Jan 14 '17 at 18:46

    @Allan this question could be worse. I have actually done this before for a friend. – William Jan 14 '17 at 18:47

    @Allan that is without installation costs though. Realistic you might be able to get a 3rd party to do it for $100 but I'm not sure. – William Jan 14 '17 at 18:55

    This is really like taking the car to a mechanic, asking them to fix the horn because the brakes have failed. Just get it fixed. – Tetsujin Jan 14 '17 at 19:09

    I think it is like having an open jeep with no seatbelts. You only want to drive it it good weather and with clear high ways and minimal traffic but it is drivable. Depending on the keys broken your laptop can still work pretty well. – William Jan 14 '17 at 19:55

So since this is on the stackexchange network I am going to just link to it here.

Basically this is how you change the native keys.

To change the esc key you need this.

  • Thank you so much. I almost solved it with Ukelele method. @william – SAH Jan 16 '17 at 17:41

    @Electricman can I help anymore or did you figure it out? – William Jan 16 '17 at 18:10
  • The problem with some keys have been solved. But something odd is going on. Some combination keys like ctrl+c or v are not working anymore in this keyboard layout, obtained by ukelele. But it might be for some other reasons. I need time to figure it out and ask a question. Thank you so much for your help @william – SAH Jan 16 '17 at 19:48
  • @Electricman I think you meant to say command+c or v but yes that is possible. – William Jan 16 '17 at 21:52
  • yes with command. @william – SAH Jan 17 '17 at 15:44
